Our Philosophy of Care

  • To provide a homely and caring environment in which residents can, and will be encouraged to, determine the pattern of their lives.
  • To provide a home that will meet positively, each resident’s needs.
  • A home where the resident’s enjoy companionship from those employed to care for them.
  • A home where the conflicting emotional factors occur in group living are understood and resolved with tact and sensitivity.
  • A home in which a satisfying community involvement is fostered and maintained and that is rich in opportunities for social, intellectual and spiritual development.

To this end, our view is that homes should:

  • Encourage and help residents to maintain a high quality of life
  • Be well maintained and furnished to provide a bright, cheerful and comfortable atmosphere.
  • Provide facilities to afford residents the opportunity of meeting each other, thus fostering companionship and friendship between them.
  • Respect the privacy and dignity of the residents.
  • Welcome and provide hospitality for visiting friends and relatives and, within reason, not place restrictions upon such visits.
  • Where possible, preserve the pattern of life previously enjoyed by residents in their own homes.
  • Give encouragement to those who wish to pursue their religious persuasion, whether it be by church attendance or by visits from clergy.
  • Request visits by residents’ own doctors and provide full sympathetic and supportive Care during periods of illness.
  • Provide a varied and well balanced diet.
  • Observe the principles of the “Resident’s Charter” and the “Aims & Objects of the Homes”.
